128 submissions for NZ transgender inquiry
« on: April 02, 2007, 09:40:15 am »

128 submissions showing New Zealand transgender people’s experiences of discrimination have been collected and summarised by the Human Rights Commission – and those summaries are now in the hands of Members of Parliament and government agencies.

The Human Rights Commission’s Transgender Inquiry has published the summary of submissions received from the first round of public consultation in late 2006.

Commissioner Joy Liddicoat said today, “The Inquiry’s hearings late last year received highly informative submissions. We heard from many articulate people including transgender people, lawyers and health professionals, family and supporters”.
